My husband and I eat there often and when family visit they insist on going there for the chicken fried steak! Carlos and staff are very nice.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and got good service during a busy time. This place looks busy a lot. We were surprised how inexpensive many menu items were. Our food was very good and fresh. The decor was pretty good for a restaurant in Altus. There is a section near the street that functions as a bar for lunch... More

If you want fried catfish --- not overdone, not too thin, not to little to fill you up, try the catfish dinner at Fred's. For sides, the grilled veggies of the day were surprisingly tasty --- not fresh out of the freezer!! A cornbread biscuit/hush puppy topped off the meal --- lovely, light, and tasty! Just traveling through town and... More

The food came quickly and it was fresh. For the three of us, it only took about 40 minutes to get in, order, eat and leave which is... More

Scores within the top five of Altus restaurants. They have a great selection for lunch, and many of them are around $6. It's a dated place that doesn't offer very comfortable seating, but overall a good place. Service is always courteous, but not necessarily great.
